versus evil. you will see it in the middle east. you'll also see it here in america. we'll stop in both places today. sometimes evil disguises itself pretty well until you get close to it and you're like oh, that's evil. then there is the evil that can make itself appear attractive. usually when it makes itself attractive, it's something that is easy to do. sometimes evil is hard to spot. sometimes it's easier. for example, mass union strikes in england. they are happening this weekend. they say about 100,000 people will be marching to protest government spending cuts and it will raise taxes. it will be something like the last protest, i'm guessing where they assaulted prince charles andca mill will l.a. where they -- camilla and shouting "off with their head" and trying to break in their car. clearly evil. let me show you the flier this weekend going on. here is the flier. see it. occupy london, stop the cut. see the horse? the horse represents power trampling over government. the people's power. what is their plan? the plan is to take over, strike, occupy, and release all hell. you kn
to israel? is america on the wrong side? i think we are. two things to watch for. one, israel is about to strike back. israel can only take so much. nobody in the press is covering what is happening to israel. when israel strikes back, which they are being forced to do now, watch out. because the gates of hell are going to open up. and we will do nothing. and it's worse than that. as you will see tonight. the second thing i think you need to watch for a call to come from washington to pull out our troops in the middle east. which may be our best option, which would send the world in to chaos. but the other option will be soon to send more troops because of the humanitarian crisis. either way you slice it, our troops and our nation is at peril. tonight, i believe i can put some of this together in your head and some of these things will make sense. you won't like the answer. but they will make sense. ♪ ♪ >> glenn: hello, america. nothing in the world make sense. tonight we're going to shed some light on some of the issues and decisions that are leaving people confused. we have some

. >> reporter: bob richards, who worked 22 years as a controller in chicago, america's second busiest airport, told us two controllers should be the bare minimum anywhere. >> common sense, basically. you need two controllers to do two things. one would be working on an emergency flight that is having a problem and the other person would be there to coordinate the emergency equipment. >> reporter: fatigue and staffing have long played air traffic controllers. the ntsb put addressing fatigue on its most wanted safely list. but the ntsb said this is not just a nice thing, it's a necessary thing and a priority. it's something that needs to be changed. >> well, anyone who doesn't think their fit to work should tell us they're not fit to work. >> reporter: the faa is reviewing staffing at those 29 airports and we're learning just now more of them, san diego, sacramento, tucson, but they won't say how quickly and how many will be changed, david. >> so, jim, the faa acknowledging to you that there should be two controllers everywhere, but no promise to change it tonight? >> reporter: well, the faa ac
sharing, of spreading the international support, of making sure that america isn't blame or perceived as america against libya without any of the burdens. if you're going to take that position and say you want to be just a supporter, then you have to deal with the fact that in the international community, without american leadership, it is very complex. one of the reasons why the united states ends up taking the lead, say, in kosovo or in bosnia or in iraq or in afghanistan is because absent american leadership, these organizations often don't function. you know, one of the acronyms for nato is "needs america to act" or "to operate," n-a-t-o. but right now they can't quite get it through nato because the united states isn't committing to its normal role as running the operation and bearing roughly half the costs and risks. >> let me ask you, the other day in el salvador, we had a news conference with the president, i asked him what the exit strategy was for the u.s. from this military action in libya. and essentially what he said is, the exit strategy is coming within days. it's not g
to court demanding that the nuclear regulatory commission provide a permanent place to store america's waste. there are 104 operating reactors, they're scattered across 65 plants in 31 different states. if you take a look at this map, this gives you a better idea of exactly where this 63 thousand tons of spent fuel, the darker the color of the state, the more radioactive waste that state has, according to the nrc. again, we're talking about 63,000 tons of spent fuel. if you take a look, with the telestrator working, illinois is the state with most, 776 tons. coming in second place is pennsylvania. as we know, pennsylvania, the site of three mile island, the nuclear site that had zadisaste back in the late '80s. and 3,700 tons of spent fuel. pretty much a tie with north carolina and south carolina here. let me show you a map quickly that illustrates what we're talking about when we say spent fuel. these are the spent fuel pools. they're steel-lined concrete pools filled with water like this one. similar to the ones we talked about at japan's fukushima plant that overheated which allow
rages on the ground. yet president obama still hasn't answered the most basic question about america's military operations, what is our mission? because there are at least two totally different statements coming out of the white house. let's first listen to the president. >> colonel gadhafi needs to step down from power and leave. >> i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. moammar gadhafi has lost legitimacy to lead and he must leave. >> but then moments ago on this network the deputy national security adviser contradicted the president saying america's policy in libya is not one of regime change. take a listen. >> as it relates to the specific question, wolf, we're not setting out with a policy of regime change here. we set out a very defined goal here which is we would shape the environment and enable our international partners to take over the no-fly zone, we're on the verge of doing that. >> which is it and how can you run a military operation if you don't know with clarity what your objective is? we'll ask john negroponte in a moment. first live to ar
